But are Libertarians the solution to Unitary Executive Principle?

The Sinister Purpose Behind Bush Administration Lawlessness offers the simple thesis, that the point of the DubyaDaze was to institutionalize the whole Unitary Executive Principle. That I found the entry from some Libertarian Twitter, raises the other side of the same concern - what is the correct response to the UEP? Is the solution to continue on with the process of 'smaller government' that can not deal with the actual problems confronting good governance?

I remain unconvinced that the myths of libertarianism offer any model for good governance. If anything they offer up the foot soldiers for the holy crusade of lawful evil; that seeks to end good governance in favor of various forms of anarchy and freeMarketeering. The irony of watching the libertarians unable to cope with having spent all that time backing the Prez to back the troops, so that they could wreck the economy with failed deregulation, farcical recall voting, massive tax cuts to the rich, and then whine about majikally saving some anti-historical family values. Well, maybe now it is time for folks to step away from that busted space craft and get back to the bread and butter reality of what it takes to govern in a modern economy!

The unspoken horror of the DubyaDaze is that we should not think of Good Governance as some sort of Prat Fall Frat Gag that we can leave to Blutarsky and friends! Perchance now would be a good time to sober the nation up, and get back to doing good governance the old school way.

If folks are not a part of the solution, they are a part of the PROBLEM!
